Free parking in Ashfield on Small Business Saturday

Have your say

Shoppers across Ashfield can take advantage of free parking across the whole district as the council supports Small Business Saturday.

The national event is a grassroots, non-political, non-commercial campaign, which highlights small business success and encourages consumers to ‘shop local’ and support small businesses.

The day itself takes place on Saturday 6th December but the campaign aims to have a lasting impact on small businesses.

Council leader, councillor Chris Baron, said: “We want to encourage people to take advantage of free parking and support their local shops rather than shopping online and giving their money to large corporations. There are many unique and independent shops and markets in Ashfield and I hope they benefit from this scheme.”
